The very first time I met Mr Greene "Patrick" was when we lived in Pepperell MA he came to pick up his grand daughter's Meagan and Stephanie and my daughter Alanna to take them to Canobie Lake Park for a fun day. We had a wonderful conversation on my deck while the girls got ready. I was so impressed with his kindness and how much he adored the girls including my Alanna. The girls had a splendid time with him that day. I did see a few times after that but another really fun day was at Stephanie and Nicks Wedding what a fantastic time that was and he was up dancing a few times. He always had a smile for every moment and a kind word for all He will surly be missed he was a proud man and had so much to be proud about himself and all his family members. Peace in Heaven Patrick
